Rumors of the Dell Latitude 420

Just a few days ago I mentioned the announcement of the Samsung Q35, which replaced the laptop that was the basis for the Dell Latitude X1.

CNET Asia is reporting that a replacement for the Latitude 410 could be just around the corner. It’s a good candidate for an Intel Core Duo update – it shares some of the same features of the X1, minus the lighter weight and the widescreen display and falls in between the X1 and the consumer-oriented Inspiron 710M (which I could see going with a Intel Core Solo CPU.

This week Dell has announced several major updates to its higher-end and/or larger lineups – the Dell Latitude 620 and 820, and the Precision M65 and M90, all of which received the Intel Centrino platform updates.
